Now that this is for Kita thought I'd make a start on him. All I've really done so far is cut out the fabric. I still need to cut the lining. I'm using a Mccall's trenchcoat pattern, which I'm modifying by lengthening and changing the front to look more like his. Main fabric is a black cotton drill, lining will be black satin. I'm adding the details with some greyish silver bias binding and bits of silver bridal satin. I might get some shiny buttons too.
For the under layer I've bought a wrap shirt. I want to make a jabot too, which I've found an online tutorial for. I'm going to cut down my old lust wig and maybe add some wefts to it to try and make it suitably seaweed- head like.
